Black Friday Fashion Haul- Ted Baker, Dune and River Island

There were so many great Black Friday discounts this year and like most people I took advantage of those offers. I bought some Christmas gifts and treated myself to some beauty and fashion pieces as well.

I bought a couple of new fashion pieces during the Black Friday sales and thought that I would do a little haul of what I purchased and mini reviews on them. I also picked up another piece just before the Black Friday sales and thought I would include it in this haul as well.

Ted Baker Lahri Small Heart Bow Pendant in Rose Gold
Available from Ted Baker £39

I have had this necklace on my wishlist for a few months now and finally picked it up during the Black Friday sales, when Ted Baker had 30% off. It is available in a silver colour and rose gold. I decided to get the rose gold one, as I don’t own any rose gold necklaces and thought this would be a perfect addition to my collection. This looks lovely worn with a low neck top/dress or over the top of a plain top/dress. 


It is a beautiful heart bow pendant and I love the simple delicate design of this pendant. It comes with a Ted Baker pouch and gift box, so makes an ideal gift for someone or a nice treat for yourself.

On the end of the heart bow pendant are two Swarovski® crystals which add that additional touch to this pendant. I love this little extra touch and think it adds a bit of sparkle to the design, without taking away from it.

It fastens with a lobster clasp and has an extension chain. On the end of the extension chain is a little bow, which has Ted Baker wrote on and a little Swarovski® crystal on the end of the bow as well. I really love how Ted Baker add these little touches to their jewellery pieces.

Dune Portray Block Heel Ankle Boots

Available from John Lewis& Partners and Dune London £120

I have been looking for a new pair of boots for a while now and decided while the Black Friday discounts were on, to have a look in Dune as they had 20% off.

As soon as I tried on these boots I loved them and was exactly what I had been looking for. The Dune Portray Block Heel Ankle Boots are in a black leather material. I find black boots to be so versatile, as they go with all of my outfits and love the ankle style, as they work with my skinny jeans, which I wear most of the time in Boots weather. When I am buying boots, I will try and go for a leather pair, as I find they wear really well and last for years.

It is a block heel, which I do like as I find them comfortable to wear and give your foot lots of support as well. They fasten on the side with a gold zip, so are easy to get on and off.

One of the things I love about these boots is the simple classic design and style of them. I know these will be really easy to style with my outfits and with it being a classic design, one that I will have in my wardrobe for years. On Dune’s website they say it has an almond toe shape, which looks really flattering.

River Island Black Ribbed Jersey Cropped Blazer 

Available from River Island in stores only now £35- updated January 2019 back in stock online at River Island

I bought this just before all of the Black Friday discounts, as I wasn’t sure if it would still be in stock. It is a jersey fabric long sleeve blazer in black with gold buttons. The gold buttons have a little design on them and I think these gold buttons just add a pop of colour to this black blazer. It is a short length blazer, which comes to about my waist and is in an open design with lapels on the front. On the shoulders it has some padding, which actually just adds some shape to the shoulder area. I think this is a great little blazer that you can wear with so many different outfits and with it being black it’s quite versatile as well.
